Pre-Departure Information

Once your student is accepted into an Alliance program, their Program Advisor will be in touch with them via e-mail with specific pre-departure instructions. Though we very much view parents and families as our partners in facilitating smooth pre-departure planning, please know that students must be our primary point of contact.  We encourage you to work closely with your student as they prepare to go abroad, and we hope that you will work through them to access the information and instructions that have been shared.

Program Calendars

Given our programs' busy academic schedule, weekly local activities and excursions, and field study trips, the Alliance strongly discourages students from hosting visitors until the end of the semester. Family and/or friends are encouraged to visit after the program has ended. Students should make their travel plans accordingly. To view your program's calendar, select from the following programs:
